Tithies & Characteristics

Tithi Lunar Day

Tithi is a lunar day of varying duration, solely dependent on the speed of Moon on the day concerned in traversing a distance of 12 degrees from the point where the previous tithi ended. Broadly speaking, a tithi may be said to equal a day (24 hours). How to determine Tithi ? Method I

Page 51: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

51

Ascertain from Raphael's Ephemeris, the degree on which Sun is standing on the day of New Moon. The time taken by Moon to cover the distance of 12 degrees therefrom, constitutes Pradhama (the first lunar day). Dwiteeya (2nd lunar day) will be the time taken by Moon to cover the next 12 degrees from the degree on which Sun is standing at the close of Pradhama (1st lunar day). Similarly, Thriteeya (3rd lunar day) has to be arrived at by adding the time taken by Moon to cover 12 degrees from where Sun was standing at the close of Dwiteeya.Likewise, other tithies have to be worked out. In other words, the tithi has to be worked out every day with reference to the degree occupied by Sun. That is to say, if Moon is within the first 12 degrees from Sun on any day, that will be the first lunar day - Pradhama, the next 12 degrees from Sun on the day of reckoning - Dwiteeya and so forth, until you finish 14 lunar days and the 15th one will be the Full Moon day - Poornima. The 15 lunar days are contained within the bright half; Pradhama commencing at New Moon and Full Moon ending when Sun and Moon are 180 degrees apart. From then on, starts the dark half and the tithies are again called Pradhama (1st lunar day), Dwiteeya (2nd lunar day) and so on till the 14th lunar day is over and the 15th one is called Amavasya, which ends when exact conjunction of Sun and Moon ends and the New Moon is given in the ephemeris. If you wish to find out on what tithi a person is born, find out the distance between Sun and Moon --- if it is below 180 degrees, the birth is said to be in the bright half and if it happens to be greater than 180 degrees, then the birth is said to be in the dark half. Dividing the distance in degrees by 12, find out in which 12 degrees division Moon is, and that indicates the lunar day at birth. For example, assuming Sun at 15 degrees Pisces and Moon in Scorpio at 29 degrees; the

distance is 254 degrees, divided by 12, we find that Moon is in the 22nd 12 degree division or the 7th lunar day Saptami in the dark half. Method II The two halves (bright and dark) comprise of 30 lunar days, the total duration of which is equal to the time taken by Moon to traverse from one New Moon to the next New Moon. In finding the tithi, the distance in degrees between these two points has to be divided by 30 and the time taken by Moon to cover each division becomes a lunar day. This distance will be found to be 389/390 degrees divided by 30 = 13 degrees. The time taken by Moon to cover every 13 degree division from the previous New Moon constitutes a tithi. Since the speed of Moon is never constant, the time taken by Moon in traversing the 1/30th division is also not constant; hence the tithies are of varying duration. The difference between the first and the second method is, that in the 1st method, we add 12 degrees to the point occupied by Sun whereas in the 2nd method, we add 13 degrees per tithi (12 degrees for the tithi and 1 degree to cover the speed of Sun per day). These methods of finding tithi may not be exact, but may safely be used by those who cannot have access to Indian almanacs. It will be observed that the Sages have assigned similar effects for births in Pradhama when Moon is waxing and Pradhama in the dark half when Moon is waning, even though for an onlooker, it appears that Moon in the former is weak with few rays and the in the latter, Moon looks nearly full & strong. Apparently, the reason is, Moon on Pradhama in the bright half is growing, above horizon, while in the latter case, Moon is waning and will be below the horizon when Sun happens to be above the horizon.It has also been stated by the Sages that benefic results results will be more prominent for births in the bright half and that malefic results will be more prominent for births in the dark half. Tithies have more to do with angles formed by Moon in its various phases towards the Sun. It is significant to note that in Western Astrology,

Page 52: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

52

oppositions between planets are considered malefic and treated with some amount of contempt, whereas in Hindu Astrology, in this particular case as well as in a number of others, the day prior to the exact opposition between Sun and Moon is considered most auspicious, not only for births but also for conducting marriages, coronations etc. Characteristics of persons born on the various tithies are as follows :- Pradhama 1st Lunar Day

Colloquially LAGAN means marriage in several vernaculars in India but in Sanskrit, it means Ascendant. The object of conducting marriages when an auspicious Asdt is rising, is to ensure that, the couple enjoy maximum prosperity, beget children and continue to remain faithful to each other as Lord Rama and Sita. The amount of importance attached to both, the Asdt rising at birth as also the Asdt fixed for marriages and other auspicious functions is the same. According to the great book on Horary Astrology, PRASNA MARGA, if an Asdt is rising with the benefic aspect of Jupiter and the lords of Asdt and 10th are connected in some way, all undertakings done at that time would succeed. Taking a cue from the above, the author has been experimenting for a couple of decades, carrying out all his important actions such as journeys, petitions, entry into jobs, important journeys etc. on an auspicious tithi, star and when an Asdt with aspect of Jupiter is rising and lords of Asdt and 10th are interconnected (as far as possible). Depending upon the powerful nature of Asdt and other astrological factors then prevailing, he has always enjoyed some measure of success, subject only to minor variations due malefic major/sub-periods operating or inauspicious transits with reference to his own birth star. By reference to the Nakshatra Phala, particularly para 7 under each star For EVERYBODY, and tithi phala, find out if the ruling star and tithi are good; then fix-up a suitable Asdt on the above lines and go ahead with your appointed undertaking. There will then be fewer chances of failure; at least you will not get totally disappointed and won't have the opportunity to curse yourself or say "Look at my bad luck".

Caution : May I warn my readers that this sort of timing of events/undertakings should be only for morally good purposes and NOT with evil intentions or going against the will of the Lord.

Malefic Constellations Birth of a child in particular quarters of certain constellations, Nakshatra Pada brings in misfortune/death to the parents and sometimes to the child itself. These are listed herebelow :-

Constellation Death/Misfortune to Aswini 1st Quarter : Parents Bharani 3rd Quarter : Child 4th Quarter : If it's a boy - misfortune/death to father If it's a girl - misfortune/death to mother Krittika 2nd Quarter : if it's a boy - father 3rd Quarter : if it's a girl - mother Rohini 2nd Quarter : Father 3rd Quarter : Mother Arda 2nd Quarter : misfortune in general Pushya 1st Quarter : Child 2nd Quarter : Mother 3rd Quarter : Father 4th Quarter : Mother's brother Note : DOSHA PHALA (malefic effects) by reason of birth in this star will cease after 3 months from date of birth. Birth in Pushya star combined with Cancer Ascendant strongly indicates early death of father. Ashlesha 2nd Quarter : Child. According to another authority, financial losses 3rd Quarter : Mother. 4th Quarter : Parents Note : DOSHA PHALA (malefic effects) will cease after 9 months. Magha 1st Quarter : Father 2nd Quarter: Mother 3rd Quarter : Child 4th Quarter : Mother's brother

If birth takes place on Tuesday combined with Jyeshta, almost immediate death of elder brother will occur irrespective of the quarter in which birth takes place. There's another method of finding out the evil effects of birth in Jyeshta. Divide the duration of this star into TEN equal parts for which results are as under :- 1st part - Mother's mother 2nd oart - Mother's father 3rd part - Mother's brother 4th part - Mother 5th part - Child 6th part - Whole family 7th part - Father's and Mother's family 8th part - Child's family 9th part - Father-in-law of child 10th part - Evil results in various ways Moola 1st Quarter : Parents 2nd Quarter : Mother 3rd Quarter : Child Note : DOSHA PHALA will cease after 8 years.

Gandantha Dosha

The last 4 ghatikas, 96 minutes. of the stars Jyeshta, Ashlesha, Revati and first 4 ghatikas of stars Aswini, Magha and Moola are said to constitute GANDANTHA, which is highly inauspicious for the longevity of the parents. According to SARWARTHA CHINTAMANI, births in the 1st quarter of Gandantha will result in early death of mother; 2nd quarter - father; 3rd quarter - Child and the 4th quarter - brothers. According to another view, birth in Gandantha coinciding with the junction of sunset & nightfall OR night & sunrise, the child suffers misfortune. Gandantha and night coinciding, misfortune to mother. Ganadantha & daytime coinciding, misfortune to father.

The actual conferments of good/bad effects on a native is done by a planet during transit and a knowledge of Gochara Phala or Transit Effects is essential for forecasting correctly the future of nativities. There is a strong belief among the South Indian astrologers that irrespective of whichever planet is the giver or bestower of auspicious/inauspicious effects on a native, the act of conferment is done by Sun, Moon or Jupiter.

It is said that it is one of these three planets that for instance, puts a man on the throne and that either the same planet or one of the other two also beings him down or throws him into exile. Assuming for a moment that Jupiter's Major Period is in operation for a native with Pisces as Ascendant and Leo as Moon-sign, no doubt the native enjoys an elevated position

professionally during Jupiter's major Period for Jupiter happens to be lord of both Asdt and 10th. The elevation professionally does not occur on the day the Major Period starts. It commences on a particular date whenSun or Moon passes through say exaltation sign of Jupiter (Cancer). 10th from Asdt or Moon. The navamsa sign occupied by Jupiter or lord of 10th. Conjunction/opposition between Sun, Moon, Jupiter or Jupiter aspects Sun/Moon. Auspicious effects will occur when such transits take place. Inauspicious results follow when Sun, Moon pass through their debilitation sign or debilitation sign of Jupiter or 6,8,12 or bitter enemy's house.

In short, all malefic and benefic effects a native suffers/enjoys, death, birth, marriage, professional elevation, earnings, losses, imprisonments, renunciation and every action of a human being is caused or created by planets concerned but these are actually showered on nativities by Sun or Moon (the two Raja Grahas or Kingly planets) and Jupiter also in equal measure. The same analogy holds good for Major Period/Sub-period effects. The lord of Major Period may be Saturn or Rahu but the malefic /benefic effects conferable by Saturn/Rahu will be conferred on the native by Sun, Moon or Jupiter by transit. Having ascertained from a horoscope that a native is destined to enjoy a certain aspect of life say birth of a son and having also ascertained that he stands to get it in a Major Period and in a sub-period, it would be discovered later that the gift of son actually arrives when Sun, Moon or Jupiter occupy particular positions with reference to father's horoscope. The moment of arrival of the gift depends on Sun/Moon/Jupiter, not only in this case but in all cases of human lives. For these reasons, knowledge of transit effects is all the more important for ascertaining the correct timing of events. To assess transit effects, one has to know the star on which Moon was standing in birth chart. In whichever sign Moon was standing that becomes the Junma Rasi (Moon-sign) of the native and counting of the position of planets have to be done from that sign. The transit effects of various planets (when they occupy positions counted from Moon-sign) are detailed here. It is now necessary to find out the strength with a particular planet is traversing through a sign

• whether it is passing through exaltation, own house, enemy house &c • what strength that planet possesses in Ashta Varga so that we could roughly determine

the quantum of benefic/malefic effects • the only known method approved by sages available in Hindu Astrology is through the

Ashta Varga methodology which has been

explained in details Ashta Varga Phala, another work by writer. People not well-versed in astrology opine that a man suffers or enjoys according to Major/Sub-periods and that good and bad cannot simply be forecast from transits. While Major Period effects have to be adjusted with reference to the then prevailing transits of planets, the latter if properly and dispassionately studied with an eye on the vedha positions, is the first effective means of roughly knowing whether a man stands to gain/loose, suffer/enjoy at a given point of time. That is to say, if transit effects and Major/Sub-Period effects are considered together and necessary adjustments made, we could know the good/bad effects with amount of accuracy. The effects so obtained if filtered through Ashta Varga, we could get still finer results. If you want to be still more accurate, find out if the event predicted is justifiable for the get-up of the horoscope with reference to benefic/malefic Yogas (planetary mappings).operating and planets involved in a particular

Page 65: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

65

Yoga. In other words, the quantum of effects has to be measured not only with reference to the Ashta Varga methodology but also with reference to Yogas. Weightage should also be given to other factors like the community of the native, profession, standing,country and the times in which he is living. The last (times) has reference to the standard of living and the period of strife, famine/prosperity that a country may be passing through.

Transit Effects Based on Stars

Transit Effects of Planets

based on

ANGA GRAHA STITHI

Just as we find the transit effects of planets with reference to the sign occupied by the Moon in the birth chart, the transit effects of planets in minute details can be found with reference to the star occupied by Moon in the birth chart. Just as the twelve signs beginning from Moon-sign are allotted the 12 divisions of Kaala Purusha, the 27 stars are likewise said to correspond to the various limbs of Kaala Purusha starting from the birth star. The essential difference between the two systems is that, whilst in the former, signs are taken into consideration whereas in the latter, stars are taken into consideration. Planets when they pass over certain stars/group of stars, they are considered to go over certain limbs of the Kaala Purusha for which the corresponding effects are given below, as given in Kerala Shastra, which is practised in South India. SUN # Star Anga (limb) Effects

1st Star Face Destruction

Example : When Sun transits over the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th stars counted from the birth star, Sun is said to pass over the face of the individual and the resulting effect of such transit is prosperity. If in Sun's Ashta Varga, there are good number of bindus on these stars, the effects will be strongly enjoyed by the native. MOON

Mercury 7th Jupiter 3rd Venus 6th Saturn Moon-sign Rahu Moon-sign Ketu Moon-sign and Elrata (seven and half year) Saturn besides Kandaka Sani are particularly bad for the natives concerned.

Sages advise that when such adverse transits take place :

• going about on errands/business etc at untimely/odd hours • hunting • attempting things beyond one's control OR going on a wild goose chase • riding/handling animals • long distance journeys or Yatra • stay in other's house or thrusting oneself as an uninvited guest • journeys and adventures involving an element of risk

should be AVOIDED. As a remedy to offset the malefic transit effects, Sages advise that we stick to our daily routine, take morning bath, observe religious injunctions,visit temples/churches/mosques/dargahs and other holy places on auspicious days like Amavasya, listen to religious/divine discourses, chant hymns or prayers, see ARDRA star, give charity and religious offerings, adopt an attitude of sympathy towards beggars and the disabled lot. The following are the two of the easiest mantras/hymns (Sanskrit) through which the Hindus offer their salutations to the planetary deities :-

• Om Aadityayacha, Somaaya, Mangalaaya, Budhaayacha, Guru Shukra Shanibhyashcha, Rahavey, Ketavey Namaha.

• Om Suryaadi Sarwa GrahaandharYaminae Srimath Kaaliya Mardhanaaya Namaha.

Repeating one or both of these a number of times and having darshan (seeing in reverence) of the planetary deities, is itself one form of prayer and some partial remedy for the malefic transit effects.

How Do You Read A Horoscope ? This note is dated October 31st, 1961*

Because many a prediction made by students of Astrology fail (the most recent and

glaring one

being that of election of President John F Kennedy for one reason or another, the

reasons

for which they are unable to detect, it is but natural they get dejected and go about asking

professionals How do you read a Horoscope?

I shall, therefore, detail in this note, some of the apparent causes of failure of predictions

made

by many, as I have been able to guess from my experience. I am also detailing the various

items

of information, tables etc.based on which an opinion could be expressed on a horoscope.

First and foremost, both the student and the professional, must have implicit faith in God.

Maharshi Parashara says, in the first six slokas of his immortal astrological classic

BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA,

this is NOT a science for those who

(a) learn astrology with a view to minting money with the help of planets and thus

change their present plight or

(b) want to test the correctness or

(c) desire to change the status of a horoscope by knowing its weakness and

perform shanties to overcome such weakness and thus jump over the

purpose of creation or

(d) desire to go against the Will of God.

Actually, this science is for those who implicitly believe in God and sayings like BUDHI

KARMAANU

SARENA and so on. Just as we believe that every pot of milk we buy contains ghee, we

should not

doubt the Hand of God behind each horoscope. Credit goes to a Hindu Astrologer of

Bombay who

at the end of 19th Century, had the rare courage to forecast beggary in the 50th year of a

native,

who was only a babe in arms then, with an Estate to his share of the order rupees fifty

lakhs.

The writer knew the native of that horoscope intimately.Not only did the prediction come

true 100%

but the writer was able to witness how the saying BUDHI KARMAANU SARENA

worked. One has to

read a horoscope impartially, with an unbiased mind and the horoscope details should be

approached

Page 87: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

87

in an inquiring mood with utmost respect to the planets and not as if one is going to do a

simple arithmetic calculation.

Almost all the Maharshies of India including those who have compiled the Maha Vakya,

Maha Bharatha, Ramayana, Veda, Vedanta and Gita have certified and assured us that

Astrology is the LIGHT with

which one can read the AKSHARA MALIKA (garland of letters) written by Lord

Brahma on the forehead

of everyone, said to be the gist of destiny. So, one should have firm faith in Astrology

and then only,

proceed further.

Where a horoscope does not fit in for a native or where predictions go wrong, approach

the matter in a

cool and dispassionate manner, locate the error and rectify the horoscope. Like the

Siamese Twins or Dionne Quintuplets, there may be a freak case, one in a thousand,

which may not come within the rules. Leave them alone, as all the secrets of God's

creation cannot be known to mankind.

Now coming to the subject proper, I am afraid the majority of horoscopes that we are

called upon to read nowadays are wrong in certain respects, possibly the graha-sputa

(planetary positions expressed in signs, degrees and minutes) given in most Indian

horoscopes do not tally with the actual positions occupied by planets on date of birth

when verified with the positions given in standard ephemeris (converted to Nirayana).

Today, there no two Panchangas (almanac or ephemeris) which tally with each other,

subject to making due allowance for the difference in Ayanamsa. The majority of the

horoscopes that we see today are those erected with reference to such unreliable

panchangs. The reasons for these discrepancies are our Panchang compilers are still

following the out-of-date siddhantas, Vakyas and what not. Almost three decades ago,

Jyotishacharya CG Rajan of Madras openly admitted that the Vakya method of compiling panchang cannot be relied upon. My fear that the Indian panchangs are not

accurate is so much that in the last 15 years, I have never read or given an opinion on a

horoscope, unless I have checked and recast the horoscope with reference to Raphael's

Ephemeris for the Year of Birth and using Prof. BV Raman's Ayanamsa. I think, today,

almost all the top-ranking astrologers use Raphael's Ephemeris, where there is no

possibility of error, for the planetary positions are periodically verified through large

telescopes. While noting down graha-sputa, I also make a note if there was an eclipse

(Lunar or Solar) on the preceding and following Full Moon or New Moon days. The

grahana peeda for Rahu, Sun or Moon has to be taken into consideration. Also, if there

are any strong parallel aspects between planets.

I have observed that parallel aspects many a time broadly act like a conjunction in one

sign. Other phenomena to be noted are : whether any planet is in Ati Manda Gathi,

Manda Gathi or Ati Seegra Gathi

or Sthambana (stationary). These have their own effects. I once came across a case

where, during the major period of Mars, lord of 5 and 10 standing in good position,

which fooled many astrologers, as they forecast many auspicious events whilst nothing

Page 88: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

88

like that happened and the reason I found was that the Lord of major period (Mars) was

stationary on the day of birth.

Ayanamsa The Ayanamsa used by me is that followed by my Guru, Prof BV Raman, through whose

grand-father's books I first started my study of astrology. I changed over to this

Ayanamsa some 20 years ago having

read a number of articles by Prof. BV Raman wherein he was reading the horoscopes of

natives of

different continents using his ayanamsa and tallying certain personal events in their lives.

I have not, so far, found any reason to forsake this ayanamsa. The reason for failure of a

prediction need not always be due

to the difference in ayanamsa. It may be due to wrong time of birth or not reading a

horoscope with correct

graha-sputa or failure to do rectification of a horoscope where needed. Further, a majority

of horoscopes

we now handle are correct only upto Rasi Chakra - even there, with the possibilities of

Mercury and Venus finding their way into different signs when checked-up.

Rectification There is almost a fancy for many to rectify a horoscope. This is called for only in cases

where actual readings begin to fail and not in all cases as a rule. Further, I have explained

a method of rectification

based on actual events in life and adjusting Garba Sista.

Having ascertained the correct graha-sputa, erect the Rasi Chakra placing (within the

signs) the planets,

as they actually stand on the horizon. Where there are two or planets, place them in the

order of their positions (ascending order by degrees), so that, from Rasi Chakra itself, you

could make out whether a planet is in subha madhya or papa madhya (hemmed in

between benefics/malefics) and the proximity to

one another or a malefic. Subha madhyama or papa madhyama occurs rather rarely and is

certainly, of more than ordinary importance. Broadly speaking, subha madhyama for a

planet enables it to confer

benefic effects more than what the present astrologers estimate.

Navamsa chakra should be drawn as the astrologer can estimate the kshetra bala of a

planet from this

and Rasi chakra. Remember the adage GRAHANAAM AMSAKAM BALAM. Navamsa is

compared to the

roots of a tree.

Bhava chakra is of pivotal importance. Whilst its importance is realised, Hindu

astrologers merely find out

the ascending degree and also the 10th bhava madhya; opposites of these being

descendant and Nadir; from these, we get the bhava arambhas. There is thus the " equal

Page 89: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

89

house " system followed at least for

every 3 houses put together. Quite possibly, this system is good enough for Equatorial

Regions and say

up to 15° on either side of the Equator. Thus, for major part of India, this system may not

be found wanting. To ensure greater mathematical accuracy, I cast the Bhava Chakra

using Western methods and the

Table of Houses published by Raphael's , with the help of which, the individual cusps

are obtained for each latitude. This system is known as Placidian. Having worked out

this type of Bhava Chakra, it is converted into Nirayana, using the same ayanamsa used

for conversion of graha-sputa of the horoscope.

In other words, the methods of casting a horoscope and compiling graha-sputa I follow, is

exactly Western; thereafter, the entire chart is converted into Nirayana by deducting the

Ayanamsa.

The Rasi, Navamsa, Dasamsa (profession) and any other chakra necessary in a particular

case are drawn in traditional style. The Bhava Chakra (Nirayana) alone is drawn by me in

circular fashion (in Western fashion) showing the Bhava Arambha of each house (in

place of the cusp points) and planets are inserted

in the same manner as if it were a Western Horoscope, so that while giving predictions,

the astrologer sees

(a) whether a planet is in bhava sandhi or Rasi sandhi, subha/papa graha madhya

(b) proximity to malefic/benefic if any in same sign

(c) the gravity of combustion if any or planetary battle and

(d) lordship of a planet in exact proportion.

It happens, in many cases, that planets like Sun and Moon will be owning say half of one

house and half of another, thus having two lordships, whereas the astrologer would be

giving predictions based on one

lordship only following the Bhava Chakra drawn by him in Hindu fashion. Similarly,

planets like Saturn who own two signs, may in fact be having lordship over 3 or 4 houses.

The astrologer having a look at the traditional Bhava Chakra (in the absence of Bhava

arambhas) reckons lordship over 2 houses and bases

his predictions on that. I think this is one reason why, in many major periods and sub-

periods, events not forecast, suddenly spring up causing bewilderment both to the native

and the astrologer.

Aspects In many cases, aspects are not assessed in a realistic manner. For instance, an aspect

between a planet

in the last navamsa of Pisces and another planet in the first navamsa of Libra is ignored

for the latter happens to be in the 8th sign from Pisces. The 7th house aspect between a

planet say, in the first navamsa of Pisces and another in the last navamsa of Virgo is

taken as full. In other words, aspects are being considered as if there's a wall at the end of

Page 90: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

90

each sign. Aspects should be considered somewhat on the lines of the graph given below

:

though it may not be necessary to work out the aspect strength mathematically.

Yogas All the yogas operating on a horoscope, auspicious as well as inauspicious, should be

noted along with their effects and whenever a planet is considered, the yoga effects

should also be considered at all stages. It should be remembered that an inauspicious

yoga is like a drop of poison in a pot of milk. Whilst there are actually lakhs of yogas,

consideration of the 120 yogas given in Hora Ratna Maala - Appendix E, is the minimum

requirement. What is the use of Kesari Yoga between Jupiter as Lord of 8th and Moon as

Lord of 12th, assuming both are weak also ? Such insignificant Yogas should be

discounted. The same Kesari

Yoga between Jupiter as Lord of 9th and Moon as Lord of Asdt and if both are strong, is

sure to take the native higher up. Not taking note of all yogas in a horoscope, is also a

reason for failure of predictions.

Yogas applying to the 12 houses in a horoscope are given bhava-wise in

SECRETS OF KERALA ASTROLOGY and HORA RATNA MALA

I would draw the attention of readers to the set of CHAMARAADI YOGAS in Appndix

B of HORA RATNA MALA. One, two or three yogas are likely to be found in a number

of horoscopes, but no notice is taken of them. In brief, if the lord of a house is strongly

placed and the house itself is either conjunct or aspected by

a benefic, one of the Chamaraadi Yogas arises concerning that house.Opposite conditions

bring in one of the Ava Yogas indicating malefic results.

Dasa Varga Tabulation Ascertain from the Dasa Varga table, the strength of planets on the lines of VIMSOPAK-

BALA as

enunciated by Maharshi Parashara in his BRIHAT PARASHARA HORA, so that the

strength of a planet

can be assessed and used for determining the quantum of auspicious/inauspicious effects.

Sayanadi Avasthas Sayana Avasthas of the 9 planets and their effects (vide BRIAHT PARASHARA HORA)

have to be found

out and used in giving predictions concerning Major periods/Sub-periods. For instance,

SUN in NIDRA

Avastha is said to cause Oedema. When it does occur in some one's Surya Dasa, the

Page 91: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

91

native gets

bewildered, for the astrologer has not worked out these avasthas and hence, not predicted

it.

Seldom do we see horoscopes giving details of this type.

Shad bala Do not condemn a planet the moment you see it in debilitation or debilitated navamsa,

but consider

whether it has any of the shad-bala (six kinds of strength). Assess even roughly how it

stands with

regard to each one of the six kinds of strength. In the Example Horoscope, Mercury is in

debilitation,

but he is on his own star and in Ascendant, contributing to positional strength.

Nakshatra Chakra Almost the whole of Nadi Jyotisha is based on the constellation on which the planets are

standing. Find

out the constellation on which the 9 planets are standing and note down their effects.

These effects are

given in Nadi Jyotisha published by Meena or in the Novermber 1954 issue of

Astrological Magazine,

page 780. Even though Mercury is debilitated, there is a difference when such Mercury is

standing on

REVATI, his own star. A planet standing in its own house is said to be Swakshetra,

whilst a planet on

its own star is said to be in Sookshma Swakshetra.

Ashtaka Varga The method of ascertaining longevity by the Ashtaka Varga has been stated by

Maharshies to be the

best among all the known methods ASHTAKA VARGA DASA MAARGAM

SAVESHAM UTTAMOTHAMAM.

Another sloka by Maharshies say that it is only through the Ashtaka Varga that the

impact of a malefic

yoga on a horoscope or the goodness of an auspicious yoga could be be assessed or

weighed.

Again, Ashtaka Varga is the method by which the day to day transit effects could be

deduced. What

is the use of Jupiter transiting your second house from Moon Sign if there are no bindus

in that sign in Jupiter's Bhinna Ashta Varga ? There is a belief among learned astrologers

that future indicated by the Ashtaka Varga methodology never fail. Further, the very

same Ashtaka Varga tables could be used for assessing the transit effects throughout the

course of life of a native. Even the dates of important events

like death of father/mother, marriage, birth, sex, number of children can all be predicted

Page 92: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

92

from the same set

of charts.

We have thus far found out the various yogas in a horoscope, call this (1) Yoga phala.

Note these on a separate sheet of paper. Similarly, make a note of the constellations on

which the 9 planets stand at birth, with individual effects. Call this (2) Nakshatra chakra.

While so doing, make a note of the planets, if any, standing on their own star or on

auspicious stars. Planets standing on stars owned by lords of 1,5,9,10 acquire a special

power to confer good effects. (3) Sayanadi Avasthas of planets and their effects

(4) Ashta Varga tables for all the 9 planets, the Asdt, Samudaya Ashta Varga and their

effects.

(5) Note the graha-sputa (position of the planets in sings, degrees,minutes) of the 9

planets, Asdt and Gulika -- on a separate sheet of paper, and in remarks column, note

down important points (such as Yoga associated with, standing in own house/enemy

house etc., standing on special star, number of bindus in Ashta Varga, combustion etc.)

All these inputs help an astrologer form his opinion. The sum of the status

of all the 9 planets, Ascendant and Gulika, indicates the summit (or height) which the

native will ultimately reach/attain.

Gulika Gulika is accepted as a sub-planet only in Kerala and parts of South India. Others ignore

it. Whenever

a doubt arises regarding the correctness of Ascendant in a horoscope, Kerala astrologers

treat the Asdt

as correct if Gulika is in Asdt or in trines. The sub-planet is looked at so reverently. The

position occupied

by Gulika is as much a virtual point as Rahu/Ketu. I am convinced that omission of

Gulika altogether does

contribute to a partial failure of predictions, both in bhava phala and in major period/sub-

period effects.

Rasmi Chintha There is no doubt that this methodology provides us with an easy yard-stick to determine

in a few minutes,

how good a horosocope is and to what heights the native would go on the material plane.

Major Period/sub-period effects (Vimshottari) Maharshi Parashara, who wrote the first great book on Astrology, says that Vimshottari

Dasa System

is the best; and only where it fails, should Kala Chakra Dasa be relied upon. Other Dasa

System cannot stand in comparison with Vimshottari in many respects.

Only a few Maharshies have written about effects of Maha Dasa, Chidra, Sookshma and

Prana Dasas. These can be made use of in cases where rectification of birth time is

required. If one knows the date and time of any important event in one's life, such as an

accident, narrow escapes, academic achievement etc.,

Page 93: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

93

rectification could be made if events do not tally with the ongoing Sookshma/Prana dasa.

The English translation MAHA DASA PHALA & BUKTI PHALA is unique in one

respect, namely, it gives

the special effects for different conjunctions/aspects on the lord of the sub-period. It also

includes Dasa

Phala under Dravida Shastra which gives the particular months and stars when some

notable events are likely. Make full use of these.

Whilst giving predictions concerning effects of any future sub-period in any major

period, do consider the

transits that are going to occur then, and whether they are favourable or otherwise.

Whichever Major

Period may be running, the actual givers of any benefic/malefic effects to a native are

Sun, Moon and Jupiter, they are the executive officers. It is only through these planets,

benefic/malefic effects are presented to a native. In general, when favourable transits take

place, auspicious effects arise and when transits are not fabourable, inauspicious effects

come to the fore.

Garba Shishta (balance of Major Period at birth) may be arrived at using the chart for

the same given in

Brihat Parashara Hora, based the degree occupied by Moon at birth rather than based

on tithi/lunar day.

Shanties Whilst we hear about the wonders played by shanties, I am personally of the opinion that

there is a limit

to depending on these. Miracles may have occurred in individual cases to the extent

justified by a native's

horoscope, however, a shanty cannot produce effects beyond what is indicated in a

horoscope. For instance, a man destined to suffer poverty cannot be turned into a rich

man by any amount of shanty nor can one destined to suffer diseases be totally relieved

of the same by chanting AROGYA SOOKTA.

Morals from other texts A careful perusal of Sukra Kerala Rahasya (Secrets of Kerala Astrology) reveals that

opinion on a

house has to be pronounced with reference to :-

a. the bhava rasi

b. lord of the bhava

c. planets standing therein

d. planets aspecting that house.

If any two are GOOD and the rest poor, mediocre or average, bhava phala will be

Page 94: Nakshatra, Tithi and Gochara Phala

94

average. Here is a yard-stick to measure bhava phala. A similar moral from Sarwartha

Chintamani (English Translation by

Prof. Suryanarayana Rao is a must-read ... publisher) is when considering a planet, look

also to its navamsa and the lord of such navamsa. If all these are strong, the planet under

consideration is taken to

be strong.

Having translated so many works on Astrology, I am convinced that the greater the

attention paid to a

horoscope, the greater is the accuracy of prediction and that, the following data, is a

MUST :

a. Correct graha-sputa

b. Rasi, Navamsa, Bhava and Dasamsa Chakras

c. Sayanadi Avasthas and effects

d. Nakshatra chakra with phala

e. Ashta Varga Phala for all the planets and Asdt

f. reading Maha Dasa and Bukti Phala with reference to transits that take place

when the bukti runs.
